Abstract

**Warning: Some readers may find certain scenes in this book disturbing.**

This novel follows the adventures of both Tree Hooker, a Confederate cattle wrangler, and his adversary, Union Major Dan Greenley, who is in Florida to help quell the Confederate rebels. Determined to help meet the needs to feed the rest of the South, Tree works with locals of East and Central Florida to round up a herd of cattle for the starving Confederates. Eventually he is captured by Greeley and brought to St. Augustine, before escaping to return to his duties. Some of the language and actions of the characters make this is a gritty book.

Local locations visited or mentioned in the text include the St. Johns River, Fort Marion (Castillo de San Marcos), the Fatio boarding house (Ximenez-Fatio House), and the Matanzas Bay.
